Microchip is going stronger and stronger. With smsc it's portfolio makes a difference from the rest of MCU vendors

Yes, it really does bolster Microchip’s already strong position in the MCU market since 43% of SMSC’s sales are specialty controllers (not general-purpose) for automotive, wireless audio, computing and embedded control.

SMSC is also really strong in the wireless audio market as well.

Microchip is turning to a mixed-signal solution provider rather than a MCU vendor. Good move!
